My friend gets the error message "distros not compatible" when trying to install the update, is there a way to fix this without having to reinstall the game (ie. downloading a huge installation file)? :?

CD VERSION INSTALL PROBLEM

Post by fchiarel » 26 Nov 2009 21:24

Hello, I live in Colombia and I bought the CD version published by FX Interactive here and the downloaded installer of the new campaign did not detect TrackMania United either.

The in-game online updater detects and download the update but the install still fails...

Same problem here in Argentina, many players bought this FX Interactive version.

You can try this solution (at your own risk) -> http://tm.maniazones.com/forum/index.ph ... #msg238389

Which version of the game do you have ? Where did you buy it from ?

Here is an update including the StarTrack campaign made by players, 147 new tracks available for the solo mode :pil
Also included, the latest fix for the game.

united:
http://files2.trackmaniaforever.com/TmU ... Update.exe

nations:
(only the optional fix obviously, the startrack campaign is for united)
http://files2.trackmaniaforever.com/TmN ... _Setup.exe

You can also play on the StarTrack campaign with other players on Maniateamcolor>
Enjoyed :wink:
Have I mentioned lately how much you all rock? :)

I'm stoked for this update... I noticed I couldn't get it through the "Update" button on the settings dialog. Will it be available that way too, or only downloadable from here and trackmania.com's link?

If you get the dialog that tells what path it's going to install to, you just need to change the install path to where Steam installed United Forever. That is usually located in:
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\trackmania united

I did that and it works for me.

Did it show where it was going to install first? Or did you just get that error right off? If so, I'm guessing you are on Vista?

Have you tried running it as Administrator by right-clicking the .EXE and selecting "Run as Administrator"? (Different than being logged in with an Administrator account and running the EXE normal.)

Let us know if that makes any difference.

I had once the same problem. I don't know how could it happen, but probably TrackMania entries have been deleted from your system registry.
If the update installer doesn't see the TM entries, it says TM is not installed. The only cure for this problem is... reinstalling TrackMania, so new entries are added to the registry. ;)
P.S.Thank you Nadeo for still supporting my favorite game! :)

any of you got the problem with the rankings on startracks?!

for me only three guys actually drove some of the tracks in official mode. for others i spoke to there were sometimes a couple more, sometimes a couple less but after all other drivers in the rankings.

o.O"
